Dr Nick Linton, Consultant Cardiologist

Specialist Details
Full name

Dr Nick Linton




Consultant Cardiologist



Site specialisation

Cardiac electrophysiology, catheter ablation

Site specialisation 2
Clinical interests

Ablation of complex atrial arrhythmias and ventricular tachycardia. Implantation of pacemakers, implantable defibrillators including total subcutaneous devices (ICD and SICD). Cardiac resynchronization therapy.

Background Information

Prior to medicine, Dr Nick Linton obtained a Master's degree in Engineering, Economics and Management from Oxford University, graduating with First Class Honours. After a period developing new cardiac output monitoring technology, he then studied medicine at King's College, London and qualified with Distinction in 2002. 
Dr Linton trained in cardiology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (St Mary's and Hammersmith hospitals), and St Thomas' Hospital. He completed a PhD, investigating the mapping and ablation of organised atrial arrhythmias. He also spent a year training in France with Professors Haïssaguerre, Jaïs and Hocini at their leading electrophysiology unit in Bordeaux. 
As a cardiologist with a background in engineering, Dr Linton's research has focussed on the interface between the two disciplines. With collaborators at Imperial College, London, he invented a new approach to mapping that is now licensed by Imperial Innovations for use in a leading cardiac mapping system. He continues to focus on research into atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and holds an Intermediate Research Fellowship from the British Heart Foundation.
